I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill press so I had to carefully drill them by hand. Once the holes were in I positioned the saw so that I could mount the extension. Woohoo! The holes lined up and I was able to successfully mount the extension. Once I mounted the extension I moved on to inspecting the piece of material that will become the router table top. What’s nice about the material is that it is already laminated with high pressure laminate. I think that I will remove laminate that is on the edges, this way I won’t chip the laminate as I cut it to length. Next thing to do is to create the rabbet (rebate) in the top side so that the 1/8” aluminum angle will recess flush with the top surface of the material. Well, gotta’ go to it again. Take care.
